Vent Window Identification
« on: October 27, 2013, 03:16:05 PM »
There are 3 basic vent window offerings for the 73-91 trucks.
1973 - 1980 - non-locking latch with a large glass that ends with a point.  These use a 2 piece gasket (click here for gasket) and mount to the door with 2 bolts at the a-pillar

1981-1985 - locking latch with a smaller glass that ends in a curve at the top.  These use a 2 piece gasket (click here for gasket) and mount to the door with 2 bolts at the a-pillar also.

1986-1991- Locking latch with smaller glass that ends in a curve at the top.  These use a 1 piece gasket (click here for gasket), and mount to the door with only 1 bolt at the a-pillar.

Here are the pictures for identifying them.

Note the differences in the 81-85 (top) and the 73-80 (bottom) glass:

Note the differences in the top mounting boss from top 85-91 (top) to the 81-85 (middle) with hole, and the 73-80 with hole (has a bolt in it so I won't loose it)


From top to bottom 85-91, 73-80 and 81-85 inside view (81-85 is missing the latch handle)
